Read it below.

I first met you, Major Kibati when you came to our home with your friends to look for me.

At first, I ignored you. You met my dad who told you that you could continue visiting as long as you would meet his expectation.

The rest is history as they say.

Major Kibati, you were so protective of your family and everyone around you.

You loved our kids so much and I shall continue emulating you and I shall not let you down through God’s grace and guidance.

May God grant me wisdom.

You told me that the world was mine to explore and I did not need to consult you.

You gave me the freedom to do whatever I wanted as long as it met the minimum expectations.

We were great friends and I thank God for you .You used to call me,

“'Inyaa kovuvuu, ula wi ndalani yakwa nuu?' Then I could answer, 'Ula Ungi nuu, ateoinye?'

I shall miss these moments dearly.

You gave us all the love and care we wanted. You would always pay holidays for us even when you were unavailable.

You sacrificed and spoiled us so much and we were always and shall forever be grateful. You always wanted the very best of me and our family.

You were very selfless such that if you were here today, and asked who should suffer this world wide beast Covid -19, you would say of course, “It’s me!"

We shall always cherish every moment we were with you because you were our father.

Sleep well.

Our condolences to the family of Captain Kibati. Pole sana for your loss. May he rest in eternal peace.
